SKK Marian Tab: Because 2 Marian Phones Aren’t Enough…

SKK Marian Tab

Okay, so some of you might already know that famed actress Marian Rivera is SKK Mobile‘s brand ambassador and already has 2 phones under her name. Yes, these phones were literally named after her. Well as if that wasn’t enough, they went ahead and named another device after her: the SKK Marian Tab! However, if there’s a device you’re going to name after one of the most respected actresses in the Philippines, it better rock the same kind of specs as the Marian Tab!

The SKK Marian Tab features a 7 inch WUXGA (1920 x 1200) LTPS display with a pixel density of 323ppi, making it one of the most pixel dense tablet displays available from a locally-based budget brand. Naturally, it’s paired with a 1.7GHz octa core processor, most likely the MediaTek MT6592, making it the first octa core tablet available in the Philippines if they can manage to release it earlier than anyone else.

The rest of the specs are what you would expect from a top of the line device: 2GB RAM, 16GB ROM, 18mp rear camera, 5mp front camera, and Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box. It also has complete wireless connectivity options just short of 4G/LTE. It supports up to 3.75G/HSPA+, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. It even has dual SIM slots so you can use two different networks at once. Unfortunately, the battery life could be better. It only has a 3,500mAh battery, which might not be enough for its high resolution screen.

SKK Marian Tab Price

Actual pricing and availability hasn’t been announced yet, however the SKK Mobile Memo 2 group on Facebook managed to get a hold of this leaked photo of the SKK Marian Tab promo graphic complete with specs and pricing. The SKK Marian Tab sports some of the best specs I’ve seen from a local budget brand, but it also has a high price tag at Php19,999.

Of course, there’s every chance that SKK Mobile might lower the price when they finally decide to release the SKK Marian Tab, so let’s just wait and see what’ll happen and keep our fingers crossed that we might get our hands on such a powerful device for a relatively more affordable price tag.
